Oh, So French

Bonsoir et ooh la la, mes amis! Despite three years of high school French, that is about all you will get from me in the way of français. The title was inspired by the Paris lingerie by Salt & Pepper for the July round of Mesh Body Addicts. This lingerie has a very nostalgic feel and is uber sexy, yet demure. The tight ponytail from TETRA out of the July Luxe Box works beautifully with the look and feel and the Orangery by Scarlet Creative, also from Luxe Box, is the ideal setting.

There was a lot more to the setting of this photo, but as is so often the case, it was lost on the cutting room floor. Had I just plopped down the build, shoved in the bench and flounced onto it, I would have gotten done a lot more quickly. But then I wouldn’t have had the luxury of feeling like a French girl for an afternoon.

C’est tellement français

Of Puppies, Poufs and Pom-Poms

1-heart-pouf-sm

A bit of a romantic vintage look today, thanks to the beautiful creations from 22769 ~ [bauwerk], Apple Fall, {what next}, [ keke ] and more. There are several romance-themed events going on this month, and The Liaison Collaborative is a standout. But don’t forget about the joy of wandering into a main store to see the latest releases and perhaps finding a vintage gem. [ keke ] has a few recent main store releases, along with classics you may have missed before. My photo shows several of these hidden treasures; you will just have to visit to get them for yourself.

I found myself relaxing in this vintage room, dreaming romantic dreams…filled with puppies, poufs and pom-poms.

Too Stinkin’ Hot To Blog

1-too-stinking-hot-to-blog-sm

I interrupt my regularly scheduled blogging to try to get relief from an historic heatwave in Sydney. Not only is this the hottest summer in general since they began keeping records, but the last three days here have been comparable to the middle of the Gobi Desert, Death Valley or the bowels of hell itself. While I normally relish the weekends, I find myself longing for our air conditioned offices at work on this muggy Sunday morning. Not for my job; just for the cool air. No, I don’t have air con at home. And sitting at my computer is the equivalent of sitting in front of a roaring fireplace or inside a blast furnace; I’m not sure which at this point. Maybe both. At the same time.

My inspiration has melted, along with my deodorant, my disposition and even my will to live. I am holding on for the cool change promised later this evening, although my grip is slipping due to the sweat that is dripping from my fingertips as they slip and slide across the keyboard. My eyes are watering, although I am not sure if it is from perspiration or tears of despair.

I plan on catching up on blogging during the week, once this hellfire subsides. In the meantime, please peruse the credits for info on this lovely top from *Just BECAUSE* for Collabor88, along with the coordinating skirt and leg sleeves from Vinyl and the hair and makeup found at The Liaison Collaborative.

I do apologise for not giving more detail, but it’s just too stinkin’ hot to blog 😦
